I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

-Flexible working arrangements.
-Global company.
-Large variety of businesses, enabling one to change roles many times without leaving the company.

Cons

-Hard to get things done (challenges of hierarchy inherent in a big company).
-Lack of empowerment at lower levels.
-Can't leave P&G for another company and come back (P&G is a promote-from-within company).

Advice to Management

Stop thinking that creating more systems is simplifying.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I learned about diversity and work ethics on this job. It was a wonderful experience and a valuable stepping stone for the rest of my career. The people i met while employed at P & G for 12 years were helpful and instrumental in the experience I gleaned for the future. I'm so glad to have been a part of this fantastic company.

    Cons

    Accounting Office moved from Chicago to Oakbrook, IL. I went with the move but after starting a family , the distance to drive was not feasible for me so I, moved on to new horizons. It turned out to be a blessing because I found my niche in Health Care.

    Advice to Management

    The management team that i worked with was great. I can only think of one individual who was not a team player or a good leader and he wasn't there very long.
